I just now realized I made a ridiculous mistake on our invitations that I sent out almost a week ago! I went to the trouble to add “We have ___ seat(s) reserved in your honor.” Then, I never filled in how many seats were reserved for each guest! I completely forgot!
ACK! I can’t believe I did this! I had 5 people look at the finished results and 2 people help me finish invitations & stuff envelopes… none of us noticed it. I guess with the hustle & bustle of wax seals and numbering response cards I should have been more careful! Has anyone else done/omitted/forgotten something that makes them feel like a moron!
I just hope our guest list doesn’t double!

I don’t think your list will double, but if you only had one seat for someone, they may bring someone. You could always call these people now to let them know the mistake. Or you could call most/all of your list depending on the size and if extra guests are a concern.
In the mean time, breath, it could happen to anyone with all the wedding stress. Just focus on whatever’s next.

Thanks, ladies… I don’t actually think it will double (hopefully not). It was more of an attempt to “laugh” at my situation as I vented.
I’m just feeling a wee bit foolish….

Oh no!!!!!! that is totally something I would do. Hopefully it will all turn out okay. It should. Even when the invitations are perfect there will still be guest list “snafoos” so you should probably just expect business as usual 🙂

It’s ok! We all have a TON going on with wedding planning and something is bound to slip through the cracks! I really don’t think this will end up being a huge deal, and I have a feeling a lot of your guests won’t notice. I made a HUGE mistake on my invitations–I posted about it too–I was planning on having everyone RSVP online but also provide a phone number for those that might not want to use our website. Well. I forgot to put the phone number. Got all the invitations back from the printer before I realized it. Oh well! Everyone is just going to have to get internet savvy! Or get in touch with someone in the family (one of the benefits of not having an enormous wedding–everyone who’s invited is pretty close to us or our parents). So don’t worry about it! By the time this is all over, this will not be what you remember about your wedding planning experience!

Oh wow LOL Well for me that would be trouble seeing as I am having a small intimate wedding and I am not inviting a plus 1 unless they are married or engaged. So I would have about 6 extras rsvp. No bueno for me….

They will do one of two things. Either they will tell you how many people are RSVPing on the card, or else they will call you and tell you their card was blank and politely ask. Are you having a no kids wedding? I doubt your guest list will double unless you weren’t expecting kids, or you didn’t give a +1 to everyone.
